About the Book
When the mother of her beloved pastor died, Carline purposed to travel to the funeral—a distance of approximately seventy miles. The weather was terrible, with heavy rains all over the island, but Carline and three of her friends decided, against good advice, to go anyway. The harrowing journey both to and from the funeral tested the faith and fortitude of these friends.
Swollen rivers, climbing vines up a rock face, pouring rain, scanty food, and other troubles plagued the women as they pushed on. God sent help more than once, just when they needed it most. Carline uses the hardships they faced as they trekked back as a comparison to the Christian life and urges us to press ahead, just as the three friends did in their determination to get home.
